Hey guys, was wondering what pound test everyone prefers for BackBay Flounder fishing? Also, is it safe to load Braid onto a graphite spool (if it is backed with mono)......... thanks as always for the good input.

I like the spider wire/fireline types for flounder...you can realy feel every bump and tap as you drift along. Tears the heck out of the guides though. Mono for stripers.

Because of the lack of streach it would actually be safer to load a graphite spool with braid than mono. The streach factor in mono is like wrapping a rubberband around your finger. repeated wrapping multiplies the elasticity and eventually you can crust the spool.

I like Spiderwire Stealth or Stren Superbraid, being able to feel all the bumps when fishing for fluke is nice.

I use 8-10 lbs power pro for mostly all back bay fishing. Fluke ,snapper blues ,weakies. I go 30 lbs in the fall in the back cause there are some big stripers back there..

I agree with the above posts. 10 lb PowerPro or Sufix, barrel swivel, 2-3 ft fluoro or mono, 1/4-1/2 oz jig or bucktail.

10-20lb power pro for the back bay depending on weight jig I am using, for offshore fluking I step up to 30-50lb braid so I have a shot at getting my gear back if it gets hung up, just depends on where I am gonna be. I prefer to have slightly larger test because you just dont know what is lurking beneath you at any given time.;) You could hook into a record fish at any time, and I wouldnt want to lose that fish due to a line break
